Matt Nielson
When you think of Matt Nielson, what comes to mind? Cunning? Attractive? Childish?

How about athlete?

“I’m on the bowling and lacrosse teams,” Nielson stated proudly.

As a team member of two arguably smaller sports teams of Canfield, Matt explained that the same amount of effort is put into each sport.

“Lacrosse practice involves a lot of endurance training. We don't get many water breaks and we end up getting pretty sweaty,” he said.

Last year, the boys lacrosse team went 7-8 in their season.

Nielson said, “We put a lot of work in and were satisfied with how the season turned out.”

Nielson hopes that the team beats their record for last year, and also hopes to beat his personal score of 21 points.

While Matt takes lacrosse very seriously, his bowling career seems to be more relaxed.

“I really enjoy it. I’ve made a lot of friends and met cool people through it, I also got pretty good at bowling too,” he said.

Matt bowls an average of 203 per game, and is one of the captains for the team.

Nielson is hopeful to finish out his senior bowling season by improving his average score.

So, the next time you see Matt in the hallway, make sure to ask him how is bowling season went!
